I have been served with a creditor's petition to make me a bankrupt. My hearing is on 4th July.

What is the best way to fight it? What can I do to delay bankruptcy?

Please help me.

@Sharron,

Below is a thread I saved from this forum sometime back, if I am not mistaken, it is from notalawyer, I hope it can be of some help to you...

Creditor's Petition Hearing

1. If you do not attend court, you will 100% become a bankrupt on that day.

2. If you attend court but did not file any written objections to Creditor's Petition, 70% chance you will be declared a bankrupt unless the bank lawyer asks for a postponement. (They won't ask for postponement unless $$$ is paid before hearing date.)

3. If you file a Notis Niat Membantah Petisyen Pemiutang (Notice of Intention to Oppose Petition) together with a reply affidavit at least 4 days before  the hearing, you definitely will not become a bankrupt on the hearing day and can buy a few more months to find holes to fight the bankruptcy.

The creditor's petition must be titled "Petisyen Pemiutang" and must also come with an affidavit.

We need to know what is written in the petition. It is very important. If you do not have the petition, call up the law firm and ask them to fax over the petition and affidavit.
I hope notalawyer could help you with the affidavit, I have not reach this stage yet, hopefully won't.

@1818

The creditor's petition stated that the Notice of Bankruptcy was sent to me by personal service (penyampaian kediri). But I did not receive the Notice of Bankruptcy.

Can I use this to fight the petition?

@sharron,

Sorry, I don't have the answer to your question, I have not reached that stage. I hope notalawyer could shed some light on your issue.

If not, as a last resort, you may want to consider seeking advice at a Jabatan Bantuan Guaman branch in your city/town, cost only RM2 for a legal consultation from a real lawyer. Hope you find a good lawyer there, I am sure some are more helpful than others, mine in JB was pretty good, he also recommended me to read William Chan's book to help delay my cases.

All the best to you, sharron!

Dear Sharron,

Based on what you have posted, you have a 50% chance of defeating the Creditor's Petition.
Please prepare the Notis Niat Membantah Petisyen Pemiutang and also your affidavit as soon as possible and post it here for us to check.
Both of these documents have to be filed and sent at least 4 days before the Petition Hearing.

Thank you, thank you notalawyer!

By the way, what does "perbuatan kebankrapan" means?
How about the affidavit to oppose the petition?  Any samples please?

Perbuatan Kebankrapan means Act of Bankruptcy.
Here you deny that you have committed any acts of bankruptcy because you have not received any Notice of Bankruptcy.
If you have not done any "Perbuatan Kebankrapan", you cannot be made a bankrupt and the High Court will have no choice but to dismiss the creditor's petition with costs.  This is law.

I will prepare a sample affidavit for you tomorrow.

Here is the sample affidavit to fight the Creditor's Petition as promised.
You need a third document, which is the Summons in Chambers to complete the battle.

This is the sample of Summons in Chambers that is also required.  For this summons, print 6 copies. File 4 copies.

Good Luck.
